Pretty in pastel

Cameron , Carries

Carries Lingerie has released a sweet lacy little number named Cameron. Available in a range of soft shades including a lovely white this lingerie is one not to miss. I chose to wear it in Sky, a lovely blue tone and added the matching make- up and Slink compatible shoes both available for purchasing separately. I had fun with a photo filter above so keep scrolling for some other shots in more natural lighting.

When Mist appears

!dM gacha items . current and past events

I have spoken about the Elite jewelry option at Zuri Jewelry before, I really can’t recommend it enough. If you have the funds and opportunity to grab up a set in the elite version you will never be short of options. For example the Mist Elite collection includes a diadem, necklace, earrings, 2 bracelets and a belly jewel ( the last piece I am not wearing in the photo).  As an elite collection you have the option to change the metal, gems and pearls.. basically every piece can change color. The menus are filled with compatible colors ensuring that your final mix is pleasing to the eye whether you go for light or dark tones.

( I will mention that the robe I am wearing has two large link chains fastening it at the neck, so I moved my beautiful necklace to rest below these)

My clothing is a mix of new and old gacha items from !dM, I love mixing things up and enjoy creating a completely unique version of an outfit. I mentioned in a recent post trying out and enjoying the mesh head by Evian/Egoisme , while I was shopping for the LoveNLust relay hud needed to use with the omega applier for skin for the ehad I saw an advertisement for the Void mesh head. It has a more fantasy feel to it.. well of course I went and bought one of them too. My fantasy toned skin is from Lumae a skin creator who offers a huge array of appliers IN their skin pack, including the omega head applier. This means that I can use this applier on Void, Evian, LOGO, and I believe Genesis mesh heads, provided I have the relevant LNL relay hud ( or added the script to the head, which is what I needed to do for the Void head).

Nowhere I would rather be

Brianna chevron bikini, {ViVi}, plus NSP hibiscus

I love having water around my SL home, today I rezzed out a little ( wearable ) row boat and enjoyed the warm weather, while it rained for me in RL. I absolutely adore my cute little bikini, this chevron patterned swimsuit from {ViVi} was released at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair but as this event has already wrapped up you will find this in store now.

Every time I blog an item  from { ViVi} I talk about the range of appliers today I decided to include a shot of the multiapplier.. look at that list! If the brand of your mesh body isn’t listed it is definitely worth checking out with Love N Lust to see if there is a relay hud, a huge list of these are available as Omega compatible. Don’t forget system layers are also included so if you prefer your standard mesh body you are not left out from enjoying this fantastic brand. The Brianna Swimsuit is available in 8 fantastic chevron shades, so grab your favorite/s and enjoy some sun!

 

Huds from NSP and {ViVi}

The other hud shown in my last photo is for one of NSP Hibiscus pieces that Norena Soir has at Enchantment. There are two smaller options each with a delicate metallic leaf detail ( either silver or gold version) plus this larger solo flower. I repositioned this one to sit on the opposite side to work with my hairstyle. On the hud each flower petal is a color option  and there are 7 different options of color packs based around palettes like : warm, cool, goth, darks, softs. Grab the SLurl for Enchantment from the details to check out the range on display from NSP.

Dreamweaver

Genesis , EMOtions DreamWeaver – lyrics by Gary Wright

Fly me high and through the starry skies
Or maybe to an astral plane
Cross the highways of fantasy
Help me to forget today’s pain

[Chorus]
Ooh dream weaver
I believe you can get me through the night
Ooh dream weaver
I believe we can reach the morning light

Though the dawn may be coming soon
There still may be some time
Fly me away to the bright side of the moon
And meet me on the other side

[Chorus]
Ooh dream weaver
I believe you can get me through the night
Ooh dream weaver
I believe we can reach the morning light

Dream weaver [x2]

I have been meaning to blog this for a few weeks now, a sexy ensemble from EMO-tions called Genesis . Available in two color versions I opted for the violet one and am wearing the full set of clothing which includes : chest piece, panties ( 2 sizes but also resizeable) necklace, arm cuffs and bracelets. The headpiece is available to buy separately and includes a version to be worn with hair ( included as a separate piece) and one that is a smaller fitting to be worn with just a hairbase.

Genesis close up, EMOtions

I am trying yet another mesh head.. yes I know I do so love trying out new things. I still enjoy the options of Slink Visage and Lelutka heads, and the uniqueness of the Fiore heads but I wanted to experiment so here we have the Evian head from Egoisme. I went for the cheaper option and bought the head on it’s own, I wish now I had invested the extra amount and purchased the pack with the skin to have the option of seeing it with the designer’s own skin. This head does have the advantage of being compatible with Omega appliers ( head) as long as you have purchased the relay hud of course. At the moment I have found a few skin makers that have omega appliers (heads)- Lumae, LAQ, Elysium and WoW Skins.. I look forward to trying them all and anymore I can find around the grid as I am enjoying the difference appearance of this head.

Vintage appeal

 

vintage appeal,WLTB items

Vintage is classic and it is back in style. As well as the upcoming Vintage & Cool Fair opening soon, I am seeing lots of vintage inspired designs appearing all around the grid. So today I have pulled together a few different items to show. Some of these items are purposefully vintage in design whilst others had a vintage ” feel” for me , some are even “vintage” in that they have been in my inventory for over a year  :P

Lumae skin Tableau vivant hair

The base for this is the lovely rose dress from Vintage Touch which you can pick up for a special price at Anystuff ( SLurl in the details). My recently purchased skin from Lumae is the perfect complement and is still available in a range of skin tones as part of last week’s 75L Sunday offer – but hurry!

 

Smile lingerie, MAAI

Last up is my luscious and luxurious lingerie from MAAI that will be available at the Vintage & Cool Fair when it opens in a few days. System layers included along with appliers ( Physique, TMP and Omega) giving you options for wearing parts or all of the set. Here I opted for the choice without the stockings .

Shalimar rose

Harper, Rose, Morea

When I unpacked the lovely Harper ensemble from Morea Style it instantly made me think of a flamenco dancer. I think it’s because of the skirt with its graduated flexi hem which gives such wonderful movement that it just brings to mind dancing in celebration of life and love.

Although the dress does include system layers, I decided to use the omega applier included. Also included with the Harper dress are earrings and a necklace but I chose to swap these out for some different accessories.

Accessories from FGC

I already had the perfect accessories and poses thanks to my gacha addiction shopping at the current Fantasy Gacha Carnival, all details are below the last photo . Have a great day and remember to spend some time embracing life every day.
